5 Untold reasons why Stephanie McMahon works RAW's top storylines
- We take a closer look at why WWE keeps booking Stephanie McMahon in its top storylines, despite criticism from certain sections of fans.
The WWE is currently blessed with one of the most stacked rosters of all time, as notable Superstars such as Finn Balor, Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles, Ronda Rousey, Ember Moon, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Samoa Joe and several others perform on a regular basis for the WWE -- a few on RAW, whereas others for the SmackDown brand respectively.
And that doesn't even include the amazing talents on the NXT brand -- with names such as Tommaso Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, Aleister Black, The Velveteen Dream, and Shayna Baszler, to name a few, making NXT one of the most must-see WWE shows.
However, even though the WWE has so much talent on its roster today, the question arises: why does the company keep using Stephanie McMahon in some of the biggest storylines, especially on its RAW brand? "Steph" has been constantly booked as one of the most important performers -- in both wrestling and non-wrestling roles -- on some of the red brand's biggest storylines.
Well, it comes as no surprise that the WWE Universe has, for long, been criticizing the excessive usage of Stephanie McMahon as an on-screen character on RAW. Now, in light of Stephanie once again making her on-screen comeback on the November 12th, 2018 episode of Monday Night RAW -- we take a special look at a few oft-misunderstood and untold reasons why WWE continues to use Stephanie McMahon as a key on-screen character on RAW's top storylines...
#5 Lack of believable authority figures in WWE today
During the Attitude Era as well as the Ruthless Aggression Era, the WWE has no shortage of believable authority figures on its shows -- as the likes of Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels patrolled the WWE landscape during both eras, whereas former WCW President Eric Bischoff went on to become one of the most notorious WWE heel authority figures of all time in the Ruthless Aggression Era!
However, when you compare such personalities to the authority figures of the PG and Reality Eras of the WWE, there's obviously a huge difference. The problem with most of the current authority figures on Monday Night RAW, is that they aren't really believable as legitimate bosses on the show -- case in point being people such as Baron Corbin and Kurt Angle; both of whom don't really seem to be as powerful as Stephanie McMahon.
Besides, with Vince McMahon appearing on WWE TV only a few times every year, it's up to his daughter Stephanie to act as the true, most believable authority figure and corporate villain in all of the top storylines on RAW...
